Melanin vs Mesothelioma

So that's just a fun word to inject into conversations, especially if you're watching a period piece and someone has consumption or some strange illness. 

The pigment that determines how dark your skin is, is melanin. The commercials about class action law suits due to asbestos are how most people learn about mesothelioma. The hormone that helps you sleep is melatonin, and I didn't find a way to work that into this comic.

A: Why are your freckles pink?
L: I don't have enough mesothelioma.
A: I don't... I don't think that's the right word.
